The City of the Black Sun is one of the oldest cities in the known world; it is a fortified city that stands in a semi-desert area of a violent and dangerous world.
Its history is thousands of years old and incredible secrets are hidden within its walls.
The city, which stands adjacent to a great river, is divided into districts each identified by an animal. The districts are bounded by the network of elevated aqueducts that distributes water to all places in the city, water that is completely controlled by the Lion-King who thus holds all the city's inhabitants in his grip.
The city is ruled by the Lion-King, a ruthless and cruel monarch who many believe is the personification of Roarrkush, the god who has the appearance of a winged lion made all of fire. In fact, the Lion-King has ruled the city for more than 3,000 years and is therefore believed to be immortal.
Immediately behind it is visible "The Black Sun" the geodesic dome of luminescent black crystal that covers the mysterious device that purifies the water of the Red River.
A very peculiar city but, at the same time very flexible
The City of the Black Sun is a city with a strong personality and many peculiarities but can be very easily adapted for any kind of fantasy setting. The Ziggurat can become the king's palace and the Black Sun can become a simple system to supply water to the city.
The city is envisioned as being located in a desert area, but it can easily be placed elsewhere. The river can become a sea, or a lake.
